WHO I AM
Painting, knitting and crafting have been a wonderful pastime, but I have a desire to turn my hobby into a career. I would love to share my passion with anyone who wants bespoke pieces to enhance their home or to give as gifts.
There is nothing more rewarding as an artist than to have someone connect emotionally with my work, and this is where Art by Jo was born.
At Art by Jo, I have created a range of pieces, using oil paint, acrylics, pebble art, pencil, and knitting wool. The art ranges from local Irish landscapes to abstract designs and knitted projects. Every piece is unique and inspired by my own experiences and fascinations. I invite you to take a look for yourself.
A bridal bouquet is such an important part of the wedding day, and this is a way to preserve it forever. This would make a lovely gift for a wife, or friend, as an anniversary present - or alternatively, you could buy vouchers (approx £120) as a wedding gift so that the bride can have her bouquet painted after the event. A very different and special wedding gift!
HOUDINI, THE CAT
This watercolour is of a customer's childhood pet, painted from a photograph. Sounds like Houdini was a real character.
PORTRUSH FROM ABOVE
This oil on canvas was a commissioned piece, asked for by a customer who's parents love Portrush, as a Christmas gift. Really enjoyed blending all these colours together and creating something super personal for someone.
MEMORIES FROM THE FARM
This oil on canvas was painted for a customer who wanted a favourite photo of their late father made into a piece of art. Working closely with the person, I was able to capture a much loved figure of their life, and one of his prize rams. I feel so privileged to have created something so important to the client and her sisters, who apparently were in tears when they saw it. That's what art is all about.
FAMILY PEBBLE ART
A family themed pebble art created for a customer who personalised it with a religious verse that was important to her. Personalised to any saying, verse, poem or family name. Approx £20.
IT'S MY WEDDING DAY!
Acrylic on wood, I had some fun painting this one as a gift from a groom to his wife-to-be on their wedding morning! So easily personalised, this kind of wedding sign can be painted with whichever colours, words, flowers or design you choose.
A piece of word art commissioned by a customer for her daughter's bedroom. We're never too old for a bit of Disney in our lives. If you'd like something similar, or with a different phrase, just get in contact.
Painted as a gift for a farmer friend, these moo cows are a very characterful addition to the home. If you would like something similar, just get in touch.
